Abstract

This volume contains the edited proceedings of a joint JRC/EARSeL expert meeting on the use of fractals in geoscience and remote sensing, held at the Joint Research Centre, Ispra, in April 1994. Fractal patterns are natural patterns which have an underlying spatial structure of considerable complexity based on the principle of self-similarity. They are therefore of immense value in describing or characterising aspects of the natural world such as its surface topography. They are used for this purpose in geoscience and remote sensing applications, for analysis, recognition and characterisation of images, for modelling and for evaluation of relief mapping techniques.
